I use to think it was silly to eat hot pot in the summer but lately it’s been so gloomy & cold. Perfect day for some yummy hotpot. I was really excited to try “Xiao Fei Yang” in San Diego because I had it at the Shanghai, China location but my friend Choy raves about San Diego location. This is my first trip eating hotpot at a restaurant in the States.
Hotpot is similar to Fondue. There’s a pot, boiler, and you basically self-serve/self-cook.
I heard “Xiao Fei Yang” is famous for their flavorful soup!
So we decided on fifty-fifty combo with half regular & half spicy.
I don’t know about other hotpot places but they do charge here per person per soup (around $3). However unlimited refills when soup is lowered the waiters are prompt to refill it. Also I hear you can buy just the soup to take home to make hotpot.
Verdict: Very flavorful soup, one of the best I’ve had ^_^
Their dishes costs from $3-7 a plate. Our pot was around $40 so about $15 a person. We were pretty full but I felt it was considerably more pricey than if I had just ordered noodle soup at Asian restaurant.
So next time I want to try their “Crazy Tuesday” special that $19.99 a person.
There’s a lot more dishes I wanted to try and I think it would be cheaper option since a plate meat is $7 each.
Yet I really enjoyed our meal and the service was attentive. However I was surprised that they didn’t have a offer a sauce bar or dipping sauces on their menu which was different from my previous experiences.
